LONDON Jan 15 Deutsche Bank,
Germany's biggest bank, has suspended several currency traders
in New York in an internal probe that forms part of an
international investigation into alleged manipulation of the
global currency markets, a source familiar with the matter said
"Multiple traders" in New York and possibly elsewhere in
"the Americas" are affected after investigations into
"communications across a number of currencies," the source said.
German daily Die Welt, citing people familiar with the
investigations, said on Wednesday one trader in New York who
traded Argentine pesos had been suspended.
According to Die Welt sources at the bank, emails were found
that led to suspicion that rates had possibly been manipulated,
the paper said in a story published in its Wednesday edition.
Deutsche Bank said it would not comment on individual staff
"Deutsche Bank has received requests for information from
regulatory authorities that are investigating trading in the
foreign exchange market. The Bank is cooperating with those
investigations, and will take disciplinary action with regards
to individuals if merited," it said in a statement.
